They were friends first. Introduced by mutual friends, Anastasia & Philip participated in nothing more than casual hangouts–car rides, Del Taco eating & slurpee drinking. Then there was a year in which their hangouts ceased, referred to by A&P as their “dark days.” Eventually, Anastasia & Philip started hanging out again, and Philip finally got up the courage to ask Anastasia out. Initially Anastasia declined, having just ended a relationship. So Philip patiently waited, giving Anastasia time, and when he asked her out again, she jumped at the opportunity to have a date with sweet, well-mannered Philip.
Their first date was dinner at a restaurant in Malibu, followed by an evening picnic at Point Dume. Philip brought along a bottle of wine, a few of their favorite candies to share, and—a blanket covered in kittens. (What? It was the only one he could find!) ;) Little did he know that kittens, candy, and good manners were the way to Anastasia’s heart. ;) These two will be getting married this February, and Nate & I are thrilled to be a part of their day.
A&P–Thank you so much for choosing us as your photographers! We are honored, and as we have now told you numerous times, we just like you guys SO much! You are an adorably sweet pair, and we could not be more excited for two people to spend their lives together…hopefully with lots of candy, wine & kitten blankets thrown in! ;) Enjoy! –A&N
